Review:
"Fitzgerald's is so decisively the best modern Aeneid that it is unthinkable that anyone will want to use any other version for a long time to come."--"New York Review of Books"
"From the beginning to the end of this English poem...the reader will find the same sure control of English rhythms, the same deft phrasing, and an energy which urges the eye onward."--"The New Republic"
"A rendering that is both marvelously readable and scrupulously faithful.... Fitzgerald has managed, by a sensitive use of faintly archaic vocabulary and a keen ear for sound and rhythm, to suggest the solemnity and the movement of Virgil's poetry as no previous translator has done (including Dryden).... This is a sustained achievement of beauty and power."--"Boston Globe"

Synopsis:
In Aeneas, Virgil created the powerful Trojan prince who overcomes war, suffering and countless setbacks to lay the foundations of the Roman race. For his version, Dryden drew on his understanding of the political unrest of the Civil Wars of 1642-51, and the Glorious Revolution of 1688.

Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. For his version of the Aeneid, Dryden formed a style vigorous yet refined and drew on the deep understanding of political unrest he had acquired during the Civil Wars of 1642-51 and the Glorious Revolution of 1688. A "sequel" to Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, Virgil's Aeneid vividly recounts Aeneas's tortuous journey home after the Trojan War and the battles he faced as he lay the foundations for what grew to be the great Roman Empire. Virgil's Aeneid brings a new perspective to the ancient legend. John Dryden not only adds reflections on Virgil and on Roman history but also interprets the story in light of his own time and the political and moral confusion that followed the English civil wars and the revolution of 1688. Retaining both the nobility and the spirit of the original, Dryden's masterful work, Frederick M. Keener writes, "set a new, august standard so influential as to be epochal" This edition contains the short prefaces to each part of the poem written by Joseph Addison for the original publication, an introduction discussing Dryden's contribution to English verse traditions, maps, and a glossary. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9780140446272
